What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
HeartStart Express was started more than eight years ago out of the desire to provide CPR and First Aid training to the general public. Customers who were disillusioned by constant price increases, outdated curriculum, red tape, and customer-service headaches quickly turned to HeartStart Express.
What do you love most about your job?
Our company is based on the belief that learning CPR and First Aid skills is of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.
HeartStart Express turns everyday citizens into life savers with CPR, AED (automated external defibrillator), and first-aid courses. Those certification courses cover performing CPR, using an AED, and applying first aid to adults, as well as children and infants. They can also certify healthcare professionals in basic life support, enabling them to recognize life-threatening emergencies and execute proper procedures such as CPR. Classes take place online, at one's place of business, or at other designated sites throughout the region.
